"Popo" Is Fuming Again

Early Tuesday evening, the active volcano Popocatépetl erupted again sending an enormous plume of ash high into the sky.

The eruption continued throughout the day yesterday.  I went up to the roof of Alejandro's house in the morning, but the air quality was not good for viewing the volcano.  You might be able to make out the faint outline of "Popo" through the haze to the left of the pine tree, but to the right of the tree you can see the long plume of ash extending to the south (arrow).


 

I went to "Webcams de México" and found much better live images of the fuming mountain from various locations.  (As you can see, "Popo" has lost most of the snow from a few days ago.)







Some of the ash was forecast to fall on the southern and eastern districts of Mexico City, but not in the area of Alejandro's house nor by my apartment.

I just checked out the webcam again this morning, and "Popo" is still fuming.
